I'm back in Beijing. I was in Europe for a month. That was good, and I promise to write more about that in the next post. Until then, check out this photo. Fellow China (Hong Kong based) blogger, Dezza, over at, tipped me off to it.

"Delegates doze during the opening of the National People's Congress in Beijing March 5, 2007. Around 3,000 delegates to the annual meeting of China's parliament, the National People's Congress, convened in Beijing's Great Hall of the People on Monday."

Dezza put this one up on his blog, but there were also other photos taken at the Congress and published on the Hindustan Times Web site. I like this one also, especially give the description.

"Hostesses wait in the freezing early morning for delegates to arrive to the Great Hall of the People for the start of the annual session of China's Parliament on March 5, 2007. Premier Wen Jiabao in his speech warned China's communist cadres that their lavish spending and luxurious lifestyles would not be tolerated, as he unveiled another raft of measures to curb government graft stating that Communist Party officials will no longer be allowed to get involved in golf course development, build palatial government offices or spend big on entertainment."
